Château St. Gerlach

Transcending the ordinary

Château St. Gerlach

Château St. Gerlach is imposing, but there is a homely atmosphere. The estate is located in the middle of the nature of Geul Valley, just outside Valkenburg. Upon arrival, you immediately see the spectacular grand castle and feel surrounded by its beauty. Château St. Gerlach's classically furnished rooms and suites are housed in the former farmhouse. The hotel residences, as well as Spa & Wellness St. Gerlach, are located in the former marker building and in the granaries. The château is the setting for Les Salons. In the former living quarters of the baron, dishes are served using products from his own garden and orchard as much as possible. In the homely castle farm, located at the entrance of the estate, you are welcome for a drink or lunch. On the fruit arboretum, a rose garden and a vineyard.

"Château St. Gerlach and Bistro de Liège have merged to become Les Salons. The castle entourage remains just as special; the former living quarters, kitchen and dining room of Baron de Selys de Fanson have retained their original decor. The view of the garden is breathtaking. The presentation on the plate is modern. We note down two chef's hats for this concept."
